Everything You Need To Know About Bleaching Your Butthole

Every so often, there seems to be some crazy random thing that people start doing down there. This thing inexplicably becomes a trend. See: vajazzling, putting garlic up vaginas, and butt glitter. Another thing that people have started doing is bleaching their buttholes.

It started with people bleaching their vaginas, now it seems people want everything bleached down there for a totally uniform lewk. And for those who measure these things, anus bleaching is apparently a trend that is getting bigger.

First of all, I want to make one thing clear: There is absolutely nothing wrong with the color of your butthole in its present state. It’s normal if it’s darker than the rest of your skin, it’s purplish, reddish, or whatever. You should also never feel pressured by anyone to change the color of your butthole, nor should anyone try to make you feel uncomfortable about its natural color. Butts are perfectly fine in their natural state, acne, blackheads, cellulite, butt hair, and all.

If you want to bleach your butthole for yourself, or you’re just curious AF about what the real deal is, I’m here to break it down for you. Click through the gallery to see everything you need to know about bleaching your butthole.


You Can Buy Bleaching Creams

If you've ever searched the internet for interesting beauty products, you've probably come across bleaching creams for your privates. Of course, the ones online can be dubious because they can make claims and don't necessarily need the proof to back them up. What's more, bleaching is something best done by a professional. At-home applications could result in serious side effects. Granted, most at-home creams will not be as strong as salon versions, but they can still cause issues. Oh, and there's the bit where you need to bend yourself like a pretzel to apply them...

There Are Risks

Bleaching is a cosmetic procedure that is typically done by a professional. Even when the pros do it, there are still risks. I mean, you are trying to lighten the color of your skin on a very delicate area. That is a little more intense than bleaching your hair, which is already pretty harsh. Some of the side effects of buttonhole bleaching include redness, irritation, burning, and stinging. To get real, some people describe the process as *lighting your butthole on fire.*

You Can End Up Scarred

Yup, really. On the most extreme side of things is that you could end up with scarring from the bleach. Even in diluted quantities, bleach can burn and that could cause permanent damage down there. You could also end up with an unevenly bleached anus. And that is something that could be hard to correct.

You Will Likely Require Multiple Treatments

Bleaching your anus is similar to laser hair removal. It's not a-one-shot-and-you're-done thing. Most salons offer an initial appointment where they apply the treatment then they give clients an at-home treatment cream that's supposed to be applied for the next few weeks. Those who have darker skin on their anuses might find that they need more than one session. And then there is maintenance.

You Should Be Hairless

For an even application, you're going to have to remove all of the hair back there first, otherwise you might end up with the bleach not adhering to all areas. The result? A speckled butthole.

It's Not Cheap

You're looking between $100 to $200 for the initial anus bleaching treatment at a spa, plus more if you need multiple sessions. And then there are the at-home bleaching creams to apply post-treatment. And if you want to maintain your uniformly bleached butthole, you have to consider upkeep. Some people like to bleach their buttholes a couple of times a year while some only do it for *special* occasions.
